Vogler, Georg Joseph (gāˈôrkh yōˈzĕf fōˈglər) [key], 1749–1814, German composer and organist, known as Abbé Vogler. He traveled widely, giving organ concerts and demonstrating his innovations in organ construction. In 1775 he went to Mannheim as court chaplain and was court music director at Stockholm (1786–89) and at Darmstadt (1807–14). Vogler composed operas, organ music, masses and other church music, and some instrumental music. He was the teacher of Meyerbeer and Weber. Robert Browning idealized him in his poem "Abt Vogler."
